Where thoughts go, energy flows. Focus on the rainbows, not on the rain.
When our minds are so preoccupied with thoughts of the trials and tribulations of everyday life (especially this year!), we often stop paying attention to the beauty all around us. Mindfulness can help us to connect with the present moment and put our fears and worries aside. A gorgeous rainbow that I saw recently reminded me of a simple mindfulness activity that can be practised just about anywhere.
All you need to do is to go outside, start walking and look for something in each colour of the rainbow. Tune into your surroundings and start noticing things that you may often walk straight past. Look at the flowers, the wildlife and notice the details in your surroundings. Once you have found something in each colour, start all over again.
Try it next time you see a rainbow!
